Immoral Conduct Affects Church Health

Immoral Conduct Affects Church Health

Abstain From Immoral Conduct For Church Health

(Passage: James 4)

Immoral conduct affected the early church and God’s miracle stopped happening. The people deviated from the worship of the living God and substituted it for conduct that God disapproved.

Bible detests immoral conducts: Apostle James reproved the early church as stated,

“Where do wars and fights come from among you? Do they not come from your desires for pleasure that war in your members? You lust and do not have. You murder and covet and cannot obtain. You fight and war. Yet you do not have because you do not ask. You ask and do not receive, because you ask amiss, that you may spend it on your pleasures” (James 4:1-3).

Lesson Against Immoral Conduct

A Christian must live a principled lifestyle to enjoy God’s benefits. Christians must prioritize holiness and yield to the leadership of the Holy Spirit so that we can prosper.

Believers must understand that immoral activities are detestable to God. God requires his children to abstain from activities that satisfy the carnal appetite.

Christians are required to desist from immoral conduct that violates God’s requirement of holiness.

Immoral conducts are detestable to God, believers must endeavor to avoid it to fully satisfy God!

A believer who intends to enjoy God’s blessing must serve God in Spirit. He must not be a hypocrite who offers fake services with the secret intention of receiving God’s benefits.

Anyone who lives in sin must repent and live a pure life. God cannot be deceived, he will only reward those who refused to succumb to the works of the flesh but serve him in Spirit and in truth (John 4:24).

Prayer of Holiness

Dear God, please help me to abstain from immoral conduct. Help me and other Christians to meet your expectations with faithful services. Save us from immoral leadership also! Help the brethren to serve you with pure motives to incur your blessings.

I also pray that you please help the brethren to operate in love and submit to the leadership of your Holy Spirit so that your name can be glorified. Please keep the church pure to remain fit for the second coming of your Son Jesus Christ. For in the name of Jesus Christ I have made my requests. Amen.

COMPLYING WITH GOD’S STANDARD

COMPLYING WITH GOD’S STANDARD

bible devotion

 God placed a conditional blessing on King Asa; he will bless and protect the king if he remains loyal to him. However, the king will suffer heavy punishment if he would be found inconsistent with his Maker.

The scripture reported,

“The Spirit of God came on Azariah son of Oded. He went out to meet Asa and said to him, “Listen to me, Asa and all Judah and Benjamin. The Lord is with you when you are with him. If you seek him, he will be found by you, but if you forsake him, he will forsake you.” (2 Chronicles 15:1-2 NIV).

standard

Lesson on God’s Standard

God is loving and he will bless people that serve him, but he will dishonor people who are disloyal to him. Since his standard of righteousness is irrevocable, Jehovah cannot bless people who are persistent in sin.

He regards unrepentant sinners as wicked people; he will keep them at distance until they repent from their sins. The Creator will punish people that remain adamant in their sins!

However, God’s divine riches and honor will follow men and women that faithfully serve God. He will prosper them in all their ways, so that all people can glorify his name in their lives.

Prayer of Grace to remain Faithful

Dear God, I realize that you want my perfect attention, and you want me to maintain consistent relationship with you; therefore, I ask for your grace to remain faithful and meet your holiness expectations.

Energize me through your Holy Spirit to walk in your ways so that I can prosper throughout the days of my life. For in the name of Jesus Christ I pray. Amen.
